The Wall

The walls

they stand

taller than all

but still i try




hidden away

still you try to stay


but the walls will fall

and you’ll stand tall

when you’re finally free


but i may fall

within the wall

trying to save

the one who will pave

the way for me


The wall is shambles

I’m left there

rummaging through the rubble

looking for you


in trouble

but still you hide from me


I broke the wall

to set you free

and still you try

to hide from me


but you can’t see

the truth of what you mean to me

the utter beauty you hide in the darkness

left without care or even sense

still i’d break the walls again

to see you smile until the end.
